Investing in resilience: addressing climate-induced displacement in the MENA region

Source(s):  CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS)

The resilience strategy outlined in this discussion paper strategically targets regional priorities and challenges. It has three main components:

(1) the improved collection of migration-related data to better understand the relationship between climate change, migration, and displacement, and help decision-makers devise more strategic responses;

(2) proven adaptation measures to help rural communities adjust to both short- and longerterm climate threats; and

(3) promoting migration as a form of climate change adaptation.

Given North–South inequalities, the existence of migration networks, and the fact that many rural households already use migration to diversify their incomes, the strategy is not designed to stop migration altogether. Instead, it offers a more practical approach: limiting involuntary displacement and, where possible, giving people the option of remaining where they are to build resilient and productive lives.
